The prequel Jedi are more like detectives than knights. I don't really hate it. They are the guardians of peace in the galaxy and they go around solving mysteries. It's Nancy Drew in space.
It's such bullshit when movies do this. Did you ever notice how in Godfather Part 2 Michael tells Fredo that he broke his heart when he discovers the betrayal? How many times had we seen them speak before that? I didn't buy the emotion at all, shit scene killedmyimmersion/10 Coppola is a hack.
They also negotiate trade deals and serve as generals.
And there's only a few thousand of them.
Policing a planet would be a stretch, nevermind a galaxy.
Don't be so upset, friendo. It's just the internet.
